1.5 mile - 12.40
Press Ups - 12
Sit ups - 17
Wow, I'm on about that now, and I'm a 43 year fat lazy cunt smoker that's been out for 15. Reckon they'll let me back in?

Mile and a half - 16 minutes 14 seconds (improves from 21 mins 18 seconds)

Push ups - 9

Sit ups - 11

Think I'm making good progress. Not sure whether to go Royal Marines or Para.

I'm of an age which precludes me from CFTs but still did the 1 1/2 miler a lot quicker quicker, 61 pressups and 86 situps two weeks ago.. Hurrah for me!

Despite what people say you will get in the Army with that, just not in the profession related to the thread.
He will pass ASDC but he won't pass out. It's clearly a piss take so don't delude people into thinking that is acceptable.

For ANY trade. Not even TA people like me.

You are deluded if you think people don't pass out into numerous trades within the Army with stats like those posted.

Pass out from Phase One? If they pass out with those stats I will send you a £10er. If any trade had the audacity to present people like that as trained soldiers the PTI's should be shot. I'm no god, but am recently getting back into fitness on a serious level, and I can smash a sub 9 min mile and a half and can do plus 100 sit ups and push ups. I'm nothing special, I have just literally focused my life around being as fit as is humanly possible. And I'm not even a regular, I'm TA and just put all my thought and energy into how I can be fitter and healthier.
